other things.

although quite why a conversation about the pantsfic with lorna reminded me, i don't know...

today, several things happened. today was actually rather manic-depressive.

we've been trying to get a cd-player for the car that will play re-written/copied CDs, since most won't. so we got one. fitted it. nothing. got another one. fitted it. nothing. fitted the old casette player. perfect functionality. this is most infuriating. anyway, when things are infuriating, my mother gets tetchy, and then ends up taking it out on me (and i knew it was coming so i wasn't surprised, but it didn't stop me being pissed off about it) and since the hall is still full of my university stuff, i was lectured and ordered to remove it. five hours later, and my room is finally straight(ish) again, although it's not all put away properly. once we've moved the bed (which was meant to be today) i'll sort everything out properly, bookcases, wardrobes, everything. all i managed today was to put all the big geek t-shirts into a box, and old jumpers i never wear into the top of the wardrobe, thus clearing space for t-shirts and jumpers i do wear...

anyway, later, when we'd both calmed down, we had a barbecue - homebase were selling portable, disposable ones 3 for the price of 1 last year, and we had one left. so we had sausages and pork and steak and baguettes, and all was lovely.

oh, this is why my conversation with lorna reminded me - her paranoid fear of slugs. while we were eating, i suddenly felt something cold on my foot. i looked down. i screamed. luckily, it wasn't a slug, it was a snail, but it was enough to send me into hysterics until it was got rid of, while i did the "there's a bug on my body!" dance in the chair. ick. not pleasant.

that was pretty much it. the angsty post of the other day, you can account to PMT (can't you always) - and i'm just glad it went away before i have to see my father tomorrow. i need all the non-hormonal sanity i can muster...
